The “Hipster Paradox” explained mathematically

Hipster-look  A mathematician has explained the “hipster paradox” using an equation.  What is the “hipster paradox” you might ask?  Well, have you ever wondered why hipsters (who are trying to be non-conformists) all end up looking the same (conforming)?

See the equation here (from Science Daily):  http://www.sciencedaily.com/videos/80f4dfa6ce9c856dbe77e51c4f9a301f.htm

BADGING:  Watch the video (linked above).  Write at least two paragraphs that explain why (mathematically) people who set out to be different often end up being the same as others around them.
